Heavyweight boxer, Deontay Wilder will not be quitting boxing after losing to Tyson Fury for a second time, says the American’s trainer Malik Scott.



Wilder and Fury contested a controversial draw in December 2018 before the Briton won the February 2020 rematch when Wilder’s then-trainer Mark Breland threw the towel into the ring in the seventh round.

That move angered Wilder so much that he dismissed Breland and replaced him with Scott, a fighter he had defeated in 2014.


In the third Fury-Wilder bout, both men were knocked down, Fury twice in the fourth and Wilder in the third and 10th rounds before a third knockdown in the 11th saw the referee stop the fight.


Wilder, 35, was knocked out in the 11th round by the Gypsy King in a thrilling WBC world championship fight in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 9 but despite the nature of the loss, Scott says Wilder would not be retiring.
